of Shelburne neither diminished the stubborn eagerness of Egremont nor delayed the action of the treasury department; and. as it had been decided that America was to be taxed by parliament to defray the additional expense of its military establishment, it belonged to Jenkinson, the principal Secretary of the Treasury, from the nature of his office, to prepare the business for consideration. See the note to Grenville Papers, by their editor, II. 373, and compare Jenkinson to Grenville, 2 July, 1764. Grenville would have esteemed himself unpardonable if he could have even thought of such a measure as the stamp act, without previously making every possible inquiry into the condition of America. G. Grenville, in Cavendish, i. 494, Debate of fifth of March, 1770: I should have been unpardonable, if I had thought of such a measure (as the stamp act) without having previously made every possible inquiry into the condition of America. Sir, I had information from men of the first respec

Against this project Shelburne desired to restrict Lords of Trade to the Secretary of State, 8 June, 1763. the government of Canada within narrower limits, and to bound it on the west by a line drawn from the intersection of the parallel of forty-five degrees north with the St. Lawrence to the east end of Lake Nipising. This advice was promptly rejected by the imperative Earl of Egremont, Secretary of State to Lords of Trade, 14 July, 1763. who insisted on including in the new province all the great lakes and all the Ohio valley to the Mississippi; but Shelburne Lords of Trade to the Secretary Earl of State, 5 August, 1763. resolutely enforced his opinion, which, for the time, prevailed, Secretary of State to the Lords of Trade, 19 September, 1763: His Majesty is pleased to lay aside the idea of including within the government of Canada the lands which are to be reserved, for the present, for the use of the Indians.

[Henry McCulloh to Secretary of the Board of Trade, 2 June, 1764.] He was not at that time, nor was he himself ever, agent for North Carolina. His son, Henry Eustace McCulloh, like his father, a zealous royalist, was collector of the port of Roanoke, as well as a member of the Council of North Carolina. [Tryon to Board of Trade, 28 April, 1767. Board of Trade, N. C., vol. 15.] On the second of December, 1768, H. E. McCulloh was appointed agent to the province of North Carolina by the Assembly [see America and West Indies, vol. 198], but the resolve, to which Governor Tryon had no objection, dropped in the Council. [Tryon to Hillsborough, 25 Feb. 1769.] He therefore acted for a time as agent of the Assembly. [Henry Eustace MccCulloh to Hillsborough, 5 June, 1768.] In the session of 1769 he was appointed agent for the province

May. young statesman to whom the forms of office had referred the subject of the colonies, was devising plans for organizing governments in the newly acquired territories. Of an Irish family, and an Irish as well as an English peer, Shelburne naturally inclined to limit the legislative authomong themselves and with the king to last for a generation. Of the Secretaries of State, Halifax, as the elder, had his choice of departments, and took for himself the Southern, on account of the Colonies; Lord Chesterfield to his Son, September, 1763. Letter CCCLXXII. and the Earl of Hillsborough, like Shelburne an Irish as well as an English Peer, was placed at the head of the Board of Trade.
